But have Christians had time to learn to be able to cope with an eternity in heaven? Some others go through life learning very little and then if you let them off their sins after a purge in hell they don't seem qualified.
why would they "need time to cope"? how does it not qualify them? "from your perspectives"
What if you're too young to know how to accept Jesus as your savior. The Catholic Church says you must go to purgatory and can’t be buried in church grounds! The Roman Chatholic mothers of these children are devastated at a time of their greatest grief at losing their child!
you'll probably be an Angel or something great in Heaven, or possibility of Another life, I don't agree that the rest of your posts concerning how the church says they will go to purgatory is correct...simply put, Jesus loves more than "they" could possible fathom is my response to "them" and its probably not done the way they say...
here are my problems with Buddhism and rebirths myself, I believe if you reflect light for the most part your worthy of live eternal, if you want it, if you do not reflect light, you are shown your faults by (God) and reborn for "another" chance, for God wants all to be with Him....but about rebirths, if your mostly negative I can sympathize with God "giving you another shot" so that you don't fall, all the way up until the end of time....problem is I don't see "in my perspective" the "need" to be reborn in a lower life form such as an animal...think about it, if your human and bad, chances are or could be you were an animal before you were human, only to do bad and again and be an animal, only to do good and be human again? it's self defeating to me...if the goal is to be enlightened like a Buddha, then it's easy to see that the animal or lower life form is NOT a NESS. step to happen, one being human and being mostly bad makes sense to get "another chance" even if it's done in an enviroment where it's easier for them to be good, (still plausible) to be human and then less than human only to be human again shows it defeats itself...if Buddha is enlightened, he could surely understand the importance of the fact of staying human to understand the "root cause of suffering to the highest regard" where as if your an animal, how do you meditate to be brought closer to Buddhas ways and reach enlightening so that you can in fact be human again?? has anyone ever heard or seen of an animal who does mostly bad things so that they are reborn EVEN lower?? I haven't from my "perspective" therefor, if they were animals the ONLY way is up, showing this step makes no sense...humans are no doubt the HIGHEST life form possible, therefor, if reincarnation exists it would only make sense it is because we "failed the first time" but should try again...as (Humans), and if we succeed, rebirths, or life eternal, whatever exists after death, if we fail, again Another chance as humans to "try" to succeed again till we get it and do it right....I don't see a need to be a lower life form at all...
